    Awesome, I love Australian Shepherds! A friend of mine has two of them and they are such cool dogs.

    I hear ya on the hammock choice, I'm excited to get my Dangerbird, but dreading it at the same time for fear that I will like it more than my beloved Blackbird lol

    I had the chance to try out a dangerbird at the spring swing and it was the best hammock by far of the other three I had to give away at the raffle. Pappasmurf did a fantastic job on this hammock the stitching was wonderful the lay was awesome. I even had the chance to compare it to a Hennessy dulexe explorer ( thanks to it mike for bringing that one ). I found the danger bird had more room and I prefer the side entry. I will be saving upfor one of these.

    I have the explorer ultralight zip, WBBB 1.7, and a will do a comparsion on all three. Only 2 more days, the bird has landed in PA, now fly to Georgia. I am taking it friday on 3 day section hike in Georgia, so it will have to be after that.
    I know Yukon feels the same way i do.

    Just put my DB in the slug tubes (thanks Wilderness Logic) all packed for this weekend. I can understand the excitement you all are experiencing.
    I do think someday we need an east coast DangerBird gathering!

    Medicine Man, you live in one of the most scenic area's, and i have section hiked from Climbing the Great Roan Mtn down to Carvers gap, and all the 7 balds to i think its I-19. I actually night hiked the first two balds because the moon was so bright. It was fantastic. And I would definetely be up for this gathering. I will be at Trail Days this year for sure, but I am section hiking into it with a buddy. BTW The Roan Highlands are a magical place in my book! So to have the "Dangers" on there would be great.

    are you suggesting a Danberbird gathering on Roan High Knob??
    actually I was thing in the MAHAA area, Pine Grove Furnace,Gathland or others...something kinda central to those in NE and those of us in the south. Maybe for next Spring---should be lots of Dangerbirds flying by then.

    All it takes is a suggestion and it can happen, choose a lo-cal, and make it a first time event, but lets do it late summer or fall, randy will already have about 70 flying by then.

    I will be thru hiking the AT next Spring in mine, so I will be a homeless bird, in dangerous world, but the best 5-6 months adventure i ever attempted.

    Well foremost is the attendance of PapaSmurf, hopefully he'll chime with a place and time that is close to Ohio....maybe in the Chillicothe (sp?) area? Great Serpent Mound area? I know there are woods and hills in southern Ohio that are quite beautiful.

    What does everybody think about early November? I'm booked until then sad to say or happy to say depending on the angle.
